If you leap awake in the mirror of a bad dream, and for a fraction of a second you can’t remember where you are, just open your window and follow your memory upstream. To the meadow in the mountain where we counted every falling star.

I believe the light that shines on you will shine on you forever (forever). And though I can’t guarantee there’s nothing scary hiding under your bed, I’m gonna stand guard like a postcard of a golden retriever. And never leave ’til I leave you with a sweet dream in your head.

I’m gonna watch you shine, gonna watch you grow. Gonna paint a sign so you’ll always know. As long as one and one is two.

There could never be a father who loved his daughter more than I love you.

Trust your intuition. It’s just like goin’ fishin’. You cast your line and hope you get a bite.

But you don’t need to waste your time worrying about the marketplace, try to help the human race. Struggling to survive its harshest night.

I’m gonna watch you shine, gonna watch you grow. Gonna paint a sign so you’ll always know. As long as one and one is two.

There could never be a father who loved his daughter more than I love you.

I’m gonna watch you shine, gonna watch you grow. Gonna paint a sign so you’ll always know. As long as one and one is two.

Paul Simon has returned with a new album, a collaboration with Brian Eno, titled “Surprise“. I like what I’ve heard so far, but then the only album of his I didn’t care for (and don’t own) was the soundtrack to his Broadway musical from a few years back.

He’s taken the unusual step (for mainstream artists) of streaming the album on his website — several songs in their entirety and samples of the others.

    Vena has had her first visual dream. She woke up frightened I had eaten a pillow and was “getting dead.” She whispered, “Is there a pillow in your tummy?” She held her hand over her mouth so the pillow would not get her also. While she was on the toilet at school, she told her teacher, “My mommy ate a squishy pillow with beans in it.” I tried to explain the concept of dreams, but even I don’t fully understand them. She was convinced all day that she had seen me eat a pillow. I asked Decker to explain dreams to her, and he developed this theory about when you sleep and think bubbles are created and they get in your head, and those are dreams. “And most importantly, Vena, THEY AREN’T REAL!” Vena’s response, “Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut, I saw you eat that pillow.”
